Kidney Research UK Company Profile

23:41 EST 16th December 2018 | BioPortfolio

Kidney disease is not, as commonly thought, a disease that affects only the elderly - it can happen at any age. Treatment options include a transplant - for which there is a waiting list or a life on dialysis, a life sustaining treatment - but which can severely restrict daily life.

Founded in 1961, Kidney Research UK is the leading UK charity funding research that focuses on the prevention, treatment and management of kidney disease. Kidney Research UK also dedicates its work to improving patient care and raising awareness of kidney disease.

Important scientific breakthroughs are being made all the time and medical researchers are constantly developing improvements in treatments.
